    Pressure and violence: Housing renovation and displacement in Sweden2017In: Environment and planning A, ISSN 0308-518X, E-ISSN 1472-3409, Vol. 49, no 3, p. 631-651Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Based on interview material relating to the current wave of housing renovation in Swedish cities, this article will analyse the profit-driven, traumatic and violent displacement in the wake of contemporary large-scale renovation processes of the so-called Million Program housing estates from the 1960s and 1970s. We maintain that the current form of displacement (through renovation) has become a regularized profit strategy, for both public and private housing companies in Sweden. We will pay special attention to Marcuse’s notion of ‘displacement pressure’ which refers not only to actual displacement but also to the anxieties, uncertainties, insecurities and temporalities that arise from possible displacement due to significant rent increases after renovation and from the course of events preceding the actual rent increase. Examples of the many insidious forms in which this pressure manifests itself will be given – examples that illustrate the hypocritical nature of much planning discourse and rhetoric of urban renewal. We illustrate how seemingly unspectacular measures and tactics deployed in the renovation processes have far-reaching consequences for tenants exposed to actual or potential displacement. Displacement and displacement pressure due to significant rent increases (which is profit-driven but justified by invoking the ‘technical necessity’ of renovation) undermines the ‘right to dwell’ and the right to exert a reasonable level of power over one’s basic living conditions, with all the physical and mental benefits that entails – regardless of whether displacement fears materialize in actual displacement or not.

    “They had already sold”: Uncovering relations among the local state, the market and the public in the case of municipal housing privatization in Rosengård, Sweden2021In: Environment and planning A, ISSN 0308-518X, E-ISSN 1472-3409, Vol. 54, no 2, p. 247-264Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper uncovers the local state's complex intersections with the market and its multifaceted relations with the public through an in-depth qualitative case study of municipal housing privatization and urban renewal in one of the heartlands of the Swedish welfare state project, Rosengård in Malmö, Sweden. Drawing on the political-economic literature, I argue that housing privatization is entangled with complex interrelations among the (municipal) local state, the market, and the public and that an exploration of these relations reveals contemporary features of the local state. Hence, this investigation highlights the local state's motivation for privatization, the remaking of a market in a place where the market is believed to have failed, and the powers the local state retains. Additionally, the paper elucidates how the function of public assets changes due to privatization and considers tenants’ and residents’ worries, criticism, and concerns about municipal interventions. Subsequently, by grounding these findings in the historical function of municipalities in Sweden, the study contributes new knowledge on the local state in a deepened neoliberalized and financialized urban landscape.

    When cultural workers become an urban social movement: political subjectification and alternative cultural production in the Macao movement, Milan2015In: Environment and planning A, ISSN 0308-518X, E-ISSN 1472-3409, Vol. 47, no 3, p. 643-659Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper explores the relationship between cultural production and insurgentpolitical activity. The specific context for the study is the urban cultural movement ofMacao, in Milan. Macao is an urban social movement that aims to challenge neoliberalcultural production and neoliberal urban politics through alternative cultural productionmodels. The overarching argument is that Macao pursues its subjectification processthrough aesthetic tactics: the process of the formation of a political subject passes througharts and creative expressions to impact and reconfigure the sensible domain. This collectivesubject is created by: first, reappropriating urban spaces; second, enacting alternativepractices of cultural production; and third, guerrilla branding tactics. Ultimately, thepaper explores the potential of alliances between urban struggles and struggles overcommodification and exploitation of culture.
